Meet Dr. Erika Putnam
Dr. Putnam moved to Whitefish in the fall of 2016. Originally from a small town outside of Boise, Idaho, she was drawn to Whitefish after coming here to write each fall for many years. She brings with her over 20 years of experience in the chiropractic field, a 500 hour yoga instructor certification and a true passion for wellness.
Dr. Putnam is a 1995 graduate of Western States Chiropractic College and uses a variety of chiropractic techniques. Each client’s care is approached on a individual basis depending on preferences and clinical assessment. Care may include manual manipulation, diversified adjustments, activator, trigger point therapy, massage, extremity manipulation, ultrasound, electrical therapy, taping, bracing, postural rehabilitation, yoga, orthotics or other techniques dependent on age, weight, occupation, health history, and tolerance of the patient.
Outside of work Dr. Putnam enjoys road biking, hiking, outdoor sporting, snowshoeing, cooking, yoga, writing, babies and her new puppy, Zen.

Zen lives in the woods with Dr. Putnam. She arrived in a snow storm and her favorite color is blue. She is a big fan of animal chiropractic and gets adjusted regularly. She is very active playing with the neighborhood dogs and wants to stay in tip top performance condition so she can be a bird dog when she grows up.
